GLENN: Let me go to Basil Marceaux.

STU: Dotcom.

GLENN: Basil Marceaux. Basil, how are you sir?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Fine, Glenn. I watch you all the time on your news broadcast on FOX.

(APPLAUSE.)

GLENN: Down, boys.

BASIL MARCEAUX: I watched you last night. You're trying to separate the difference between republic and democracy there. That was pretty good, except you missed one thing.

PAT: What did he miss?

BASIL MARCEAUX: We take an oath to republic our democracy. So, we have to (inaudible) so, we have to kick them out and we actually say the (inaudible.)

PAT: Good point.

GLENN: Basil, let me ask you. There are a lot of people and I think there are some within arm's length currently that would question whether or not you're a serious candidate.

PAT: We're so serious about Basil, we believe that let's just get this one out of the way, first of all.

GLENN: Boys.

PAT: Shouldn't we?

STU: Sure, yeah.

PAT: Because I think there's some concern I don't think you can tell us, can you, Basil, that -- hasn't it been suggested that maybe you shouldn't run for President already? Has it been suggested?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Well, they want me to run for governor in California. I have a guy in West Virginia that wants to give me all his property so I can run for Virginia in West Virginia because up there all you have to do is own property to vote.

PAT: There's a ground swell. A grass roots ground swell.

BASIL MARCEAUX: There's a website out there that says Marceaux and Palin in 2012.

PAT: That's what I suggested. So, I guess we've got to get this out of the way first. Now, if elected governor of Tennessee, I mean, will you serve for, like, a year and then start running for President of the United States?

STU: Is this just a spring board for your national aspirations?

BASIL MARCEAUX: It takes a lot of signatures to become a candidate for President. If I get enough support from everyone out there to get me signatures, I'll give it a shot because I don't think anyone else is going to have guts to fix the country the way I want to fix it, where we all say a pledge to the republic and we actually mean it and we fly the real Betsy Ross flag.

STU: The gold fringe one.

BASIL MARCEAUX: I think it was Roosevelt who said you cannot desecrate our quarries. If we desecrate our quarries, then I say we might as well shoot the eagle.

STU: Yeah. That's a really good point.

PAT: It's a lot like Davy Crockett said when he said the declare naked quote.

GLENN: Basil?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Yes.

GLENN: You wear a badge around your neck. Were you a police officer or a sheriff -- what is that badge that you wear around your neck?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Okay. In fact, I'm the only one in the United States who wears it. Several years ago, as a matter of fact, I started my year, the same year you started your radio show, 2001, when a law enforcement officer put a gun to my face at a stop sign and pulled my friends out of the car and kicked the crap out of him. He was a Navy Seal like Rambo. I'm sure Rambo wouldn't have liked that much. So, I told the officer then that I was going to look for a law that allowed a marine to arrest anyone who breaks the Constitution. After three years and six months, I found Federal Law 241, the emancipation proclamation proclamation, the Civil Rights Act of 1866, and the (inaudible.)

PAT: And this is why you're going to ban all traffic stops, right?

BASIL MARCEAUX: No. Actually the traffic stops itself is the second part, where you get out of the car, what are you doing in this part of town, who have you got there, what's underneath your seat, Hey, what's that dead body in the trunk.

PAT: I hate it -- they ask me that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Basil, shouldn't we Basil, Basil

BASIL MARCEAUX: Why don't they just take a minute and go over to the judge and get a warrant and assume they have enough evidence first?

STU: Exactly.

GLENN: I agree with that, but

BASIL MARCEAUX: kick me in the head.

GLENN: I agree with that, but if he can see the dead body in your trunk, he doesn't need the search warrant, does he?

STU: He won't see if there's no traffic stop

BASIL MARCEAUX: It's the way you interpret our Constitution. The Constitution says if you you have to have look through my window or through my keyhole in my trunk bed, you have to have a warrant to go through my papers

STU: Thank you. See, Glenn?

GLENN: If somebody says what about that dead body in your trunk, isn't that something maybe if a cop knows there's a dead body, I don't want him opening up your trunk untorn, because if you have a dead body in there, it might be a good thing, but I don't want a cop to be opening up your trunk without a warrant, et cetera, and they can't do that. You're right on that, but, I mean, if he says to you while you're sitting in the car, what's up with the dead body in your trunk and there is a dead body in the trunk

BASIL MARCEAUX: Well, I just have to say to him I would have to say to him, you can't look through my keyhole or my window

STU: Yep. I agree with you on that.

GLENN: Bingo.

PAT: It's like Melissa Ethridge says, come through my window.

Glenn: Where does the badge come in?

BASIL MARCEAUX: Back to the badge. I found the emancipation proclamation I'm kind of tired right now emancipation proclamation that says the United States government and the military and the Navy to maintain and recognize such person to keep people free from slavery and no act should stop them. And we all know if I'm 4th Recon marine, the best soldier in the world, everybody knows I maintain for life and my oath is for life to protect and defend, but I have no power. I should be able to arrest people who break the Constitution. This was my oath. So, I went looking for the law to see if a marine can arrest Constitutional violators and I came upon (inaudible) 39th Congress (Inaudible) Page 38, 41, and 42. That's the same law that gave African Americans four eighths of a mule.

GLENN: So, you made the badge. What does the badge say?

BASIL MARCEAUX: It says okay. On the third prong it says if you're an Army or Navy civilian, you are a great man. You're immune from all crimes, including murder. You're above civil law. You're protected by the military. You can go into any court in the land and say, Hey, Judge, you're under arrest for breaking the Constitution and when I rule, there is no appeal for you and you should be scared of me because if you if you don't get off the Bench when I tell you, I have to treat you like a bank robber. That's why we printed it in our

PAT: That seems to be a lot of power, Basil

STU: Yeah, it is.

BASIL MARCEAUX: But (inaudible) it says that there is when this draw is apprehended by the citizens of the future, the outcry will be just as powerful as it was when the now dominant party invaded our country and ordered republic restored in the future by a great man going to the ballot box

STU: This goes along with Basil's policies.

PAT: Very small writing.

STU: And he will bring larger badges to Tennessee, if you just elect Basil Marceaux.

Glenn: Good luck today.

BASIL MARCEAUX: Thank you.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

Watch a clip from the full interview with Matthew Yglesias below:

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
